SpaceX (Elon Musk Startup) has lauched a supply aircraft Dragon for NASA International Space Center to deliver critical cargo. Dragon will be filled with more than 5,000 pounds of supplies and payloads, including critical materials to directly support dozens of the more than 250 science and research investigations

Dragon was launched by SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket to low-Earth orbit .  The launch of Dragon shall help in investigations to experiments with potential to help fight human disease, monitor climate data, and improve autonomous spacecraft docking with the orbiting laboratory. Dragon will return to Earth after an approximately one month stay at the orbiting laboratory. About fivehours after Dragon leaves the station, it will conduct its deorbit burn, which lasts up to 10 minutes. It takes about 30 minutes for Dragon to reenter the Earth’s atmosphere and splash down in the Pacific Ocean off thecoast of Baja California.

The aircraft had some mechanical issue and was deferred for a day to launch. The second launch was successful . According to the statement over the website the company stated “SpaceX’s Falcon 9 and Dragon “were designed from the outset to deliver humans into space and under an agreement with NASA, SpaceX is actively working toward that goal.”
